Abstract

A synergistic effect between Au and Co has been successfully demonstrated in the selective oxidation of Ethylbenzene. Solubilized Au nanoclusters are initiators different from traditional free radical initiators. Cyclooctene hydroperoxide is most likely to be the mediator between Au and Co. Some oxidation products from c-C8= oxidation can increase the efficiency of peroxide initiator.
